How To Remove Pet Hair From Carpet

Pets give us a lot of pleasant moments – they welcome us from work, and generously share their love with the owners. Well, an evening walk with a dog or a sitting with a cat on his lap can hardly be replaced. However, there are also minor problems that arise with the appearance of a furry friend in the house. One of them is the wool on the carpet, which is not so easy to remove.

In order for the animal to shed less, it is important to properly care for it. Wash it periodically and comb it out with a special comb. The breeder or veterinarian will tell you what kind of care your pet needs.

If your pet has a favorite spot on the carpet, where it most often lies, be sure to put a mat there, then the main part of the fur will remain on it.

As practice shows, it is easiest to remove wool from long-haired animals from the carpet. Routine vacuuming is sufficient. Thinner, shorter hairs are woven more into the pile of the carpet, so cleaning the carpet may takes more time and effort.

How to remove pet hair from carpet

Here are some tips for cleaning pet hair from carpets:

  1. Sweep the carpet with a damp broom. Most likely, you will remove only part of the hair, but the rest of the hairs will rise, and they can be easily collected with a vacuum cleaner.
  2. Manual cleaning with a damp cloth. Starting at one end, work your way over the entire carpet with a damp cloth. As soon as the rag becomes clogged with wool, rinse it in clean water. The method is quite painstaking, but it allows you to completely get rid of animal hair, even on heavily soiled carpets.
  3. You can also use scotch tape for cleaning wool. Wrap the tape around your hand (sticky side out) and press against the carpet. Change the tape as it gets dirty. The upholstery of upholstered furniture can also be cleaned in the same way.
  4. The Fastest way: Mix 1 cup (0.24 liters) of water and 1 cup (0.24 liters) of fabric softener. Use a spray bottle to spray onto the carpet. This mixture will soften the animal’s hair and make it easier to clean. After drying, vacuum the carpet.
  5. You can use special gloves for combing cats and dogs, which are sold at pet stores. This is a rag with one rubberized side on which animal hair sticks. You can comb out not only your pet with such a mitten, but also walk on the carpet – this will remove most of the faded coat.

No matter how trite it may sound, the most important recipe for keeping the carpet clean is timely, periodic vacuuming. For owners of small animals, we recommend cleaning the carpet 2 times a week, but for owners of large pets or during seasonal molting, it is better to find time to clean the floor at least every other day. After all, it is much easier to remove single hairs not trampled into the carpet than to clean off the “fur outfit” from the carpet.

P.S. The company “Classy Carpet and Rug Cleaning” wants you to invite them to clean your carpets at home. Professional cleaning will save you from the hassles associated with deeply embedded dirt in the pile and base of the carpet, and will restore the original attractiveness of the carpet.
